And both teams certainly put up a fight. Not only did the game go into a 20-minute overtime, but the extra time ended in a 2-2 tie thanks to a penalty shootout. During a sudden-death shootout, forward Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson delivered the winning goal.

Canada similarly beat USA 3-2 in overtime at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. This is the first gold medal for the U.S. women’s hockey team since 1998. So it’s no wonder that numerous celebs — including Olivia Munn, Hailey Baldwin, Josh Gad, etc. — have celebrated the female athletes’ achievement on Twitter.
